This is a full port of the 1993 mac game "Pathways Into Darkness" by Bungie to the Aleph One engine. Therefore, Pathways into Darkness is now available on Windows, Linux, and Mac.
Note: You must use (an old) version of Aleph One currently, as version 1.4 has a bug. Download it here: https://github.com/Aleph-One-Marathon/alephone/releases/tag/release-20200904.
This is a little different from a typical marathon scenario, as it features:
- Levels that can be re-visited multiple times with their state preserved.
- Advanced inventory for carrying and using many items.
- Resting to heal.
- Use of crystals to use special powers, along with conventional weapons.
- RPG elements.
- An ending score based on how you do while playing the game.
- Talking to the dead.
Make sure to read the readme for important information about controls. There are some non-obvious things you need to be aware of when playing the game. If you get stuck, there is a link to some Youtube videos in the readme that can be used as a guide.
Notes for version 1.2:
Changes for 1.2:
Requires AlephOne 1.3 now. Making use of new AlephOne features for a better implementation of certain things. Various bug fixes and fix the spelling of The Labyrinth. See readme for more details.
Changes for 1.1.1:
Fix issue with people that started a game on v1.0, upgraded to 1.1 and continued their saved games. They were not able to arm the bomb.
Changes for 1.1:
Many bug fixes and other improvements/quality of life changes.
The readme has a full list of changes in 1.1.
If you are currently playing through the game, you can keep using your existing saved game. Just click OK when it says the map has changed, and the next time you transition between levels, you'll get the new changes.

NEFX is proud to present the first ever custom-made map for Pathways Into Darkness...Or at least Marathon: Pathways Into Darkness. This is an extermination level, so return to your starting platform to exit after killing everything.
This level is highly action-oriented and full of edifying trials and variety like never before experienced in the game.

Notes for version 2.0:
First release: I would like to thank treellama very much for his amazing Cheats and No PiD scripts. Big thanks also goes to Megabyte for Jump script, parts of which I used. Unfortunately I was unable to get in touch with them so I hope they don't mind this release.
To install: just copy the script to "scripts" folder and enable it in-game in Preferences->Environment->Solo script Edit the script to read more info about the cheats (very recommended).
